The Mekong Migration Network (MMN) proudly presents a photo exhibition and multimedia documentary in collaboration with photographer John Hulme.
“Beyond ‘Tolerance’: Living Together with Migrants” is part of an ongoing MMN collaborative project examining the impact of social exclusion on migrants from the Mekong. MMN and photographer John Hulme visited Myanmar, Cambodia, Thailand, and Japan to learn from the experiences of migrant workers, migrant returnees, and migrants’ families. The project documented the social exclusion many migrants face, including the challenges of reintegrating into society upon return to their home countries.
On Friday 28 October, the photo exhibition and multimedia documentary, which capture some of the aspirations and struggles of Mekong migrants, will be launched and followed by a public discussion on the issue of enhancing social inclusion amongst migrant returnees in Myanmar.
Speakers include representatives of the Ministry of Labour, Immigration and Population, International Labour Organization, 88 Generation Peace and Open Society, Cambodian Women’s Crisis Center, and Myanmar’s migrant community.
We hope that the event and exhibition will help generate broader discussion on what needs to change so that we can go beyond “tolerance” and embrace the friendship and contributions migrants bring to society.
